Bad Omens announce new tour of North America
Bad Omens slip past restrictions only to suffocate tradition in the end. The group’s vocalist Noah Sebastian, guitarist Joakim “Jolly” Karlsson, bassist Nick Ruffilo, and drummer Nick Folio bring eerie atmospheres, catchy hooks, and the tingles of sensual high-register harmonies to life through cinematic production.
The Bad Omens’ third full-length album, “THE DEATH OF PEACE OF MIND,” which has amassed over 250M international streams and received praise, presents an uncompromising and unmistakable vision (Sumerian Records).
Bad Omens dropped a new song
“The recording process altered us as musicians and songwriters. Since I didn’t have to worry about meeting anyone else’s expectations for the sound of our third album when I was composing, I feel like it liberated me as an artist in many ways. whether it be our record label or our fans.
However, Bad Omens have always used this degree of magic .The band found themselves at home in Los Angeles with lots of leisure after their first headline tour was postponed midway amid the height of the global pandemic.
There they took in and shared an unexpectedly diverse palette of inspirations. They channeled a sound that the frontman occasionally refers to as “cursive,” and they embraced their newly discovered self-assurance and limitless creativity. Anything went in the studio, and all “rules” were broken.
While GRAMMY® Award-nominated producer and songwriter Zakk Cervini (Halsey, Grimes, Poppy, blink-182) contributed his skills with the mix and master, Noah and Jolly composed, produced, and engineered the songs themselves. Challenging himself, Noah decided to “make a track sampling items around the house, none of which were musical instruments”.
In the end, this served as the basis for the first single, “THE DEATH OF PEACE OF MIND.” His voice transforms from a breathy sigh into an intriguing and alluring hook, breaking from a whisper into the seductive cry, “It wasn’t hard to realize,” as claps break through the chilly backdrop. The death of peace of mind is love. It ends with a dramatic scream lifted by a warped crunch.
He continues, “The whole record actually details the loss of peace of mind. The conflict at the core of something more private and personal is described in more detail in the lyrics of the title track.
Speaking it out loud gives Bad Omens a measure of consolation and empathy with an ominous overtone. On “THE DEATH OF PEACE OF MIND,” they also give rock music a seductive new shape.
He stops short of saying, “Sonically, we want to do something you can’t arrive late or early too.” “You can’t get to the last act by lying. You must board the journey and continue to process it to the end. The songs are intended to be listened in their entirety. We want you to accompany us on the entire journey.
